Quincy Welcoming a New Business Infusing African Culture into the Local Scene


Apr 4, 2024

Bwembya’s Market is set to showcase art created by Zambian artists, with a grand opening scheduled for April 11th at 10 a.m. Be sure to watch the video to see what they have to offer. Located in the Quincy neighborhood, the business is owned by Kena Bwembya and her husband Charles, who aim to support Zambian artists and share the beauty of Zambia with their community.

Charles, who hails from Zambia, mentioned that the market will feature a variety of items such as jewelry and kitchenware from his home country. However, their primary focus is on displaying Zambian art created by local artists. The couple hopes to educate their neighbors about the rich culture and heritage of Africa, specifically from Zambia.

With the rise of social media and online content, many people have limited exposure to different countries and cultures beyond what they see online. The Bwembya’s want to offer a hands-on experience for their community to discover and appreciate the African culture right in their own backyard. By showcasing Zambian art and crafts, they aim to bridge the gap between continents and bring a piece of Zambia to their local community.

According to a report by Surface, a significant percentage of Africa’s cultural heritage is held outside the continent. Bwembya’s Market is one of the places working to change that narrative by sharing and preserving Zambia’s rich cultural history. The market’s grand opening on April 11th promises to be an exciting opportunity for the community to explore and connect with the diverse artistry and craftsmanship from Zambia.
